Research Interests

My research interests lie in infectious diseases and host pathogen interactions. I want to continue learning more about what causes microbes to express certain genes and how their behaviors affect their host. By understanding their mechanisms, we can track and target specific points in a host pathogen relationship to improve medical treatments. During my free time, I enjoy watching movies and exploring new places.
